Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 'for the OTTAWA As York- Simcoe Conservative MP Sinclair Stevens puts it, the transport department is spending literally "for the birds Actually it's the cost of plot- ting flight patterns of migrating birds across what come day will be the runways of the new million Toronto International Airport Number Two at Pickering, Ontario "And to suggests Mr Sinclair, "that they could have got it done for free perhaps by simply asking the bird-watchers of Metro Toronto and the Oshawa- Pickermg area to make a count "For don't bird-watchers, and you know how many thousands there are of those, and how devoted they are to it, make seasonal surveys, a sort Wednesday, October 31, 1973-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD-30 to count biras flying past the moon, how long did the count take, what was the cost and what were the results'" Transport Minister Marchand in a written reply tabled in the House has dis- closed that the question of birds flights was raised on the basis of their flight patterns being a serious hazard to safe aircraft operations" at the new Toronto airport-to-be of ornithological census' "In my accounting books (and Mr Stevens is a finan- cier) this kind of spending is for the birds The information came to light in the Commons as a result of a question asked by Mr Stevens "What was the nature of the survey related to the proposed airport at Pickering that re- quired government employees Water poured in smoldering ship Halifax port firemen pour a stream of water on the smoldering holds of the Greek freighter Eurygones as she was towed into port at Halifax The fire began Oct 21 at sea and six of the ship's 42-man crew eventually lost their lives Auto deal developments questions are raised By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA An unprece- dented demand on the part of Canadians for North American made tars contributed to the net deficit in automotive trade between Canada and the United States for the first six months of this year, Trade and Commerce Minister Alastair Gillespie told the Commons Back in Canada after a visit to the Soviet Union and Yugo slavia to promote greater trade between Canada and those two countries Mr Gillespie was sharply questioned about the latest developments in the auto pact between Canada and the U S Edward Broadbent Oshawa Whitby) said that while the minister was visiting the two countries Statistics Canada reported a net deficit of million in automotive trade between Canada and the U S Considering our surplus during the same period last year this represents a turn around of some million in trade in favour ot the U S said Mr Broadbent He asked if the minister's officials had looked into the causes of this significant shift in trade in favour of the US will he tell the house what is the cause of the shift' We have looked at some of the underlying said Mr Gillespie "I think clearly there has been quite an un- precedented demand on the part of Canadians for North American made cars Mr Broadbent said that was a "curious answer He said the statistics show- ed that for the last three years more than 95 per cent of the investment in that industry occurred on the American side of the border "It is likely the principal cause for this shift in trade he said The NDP member wanted to know what the trade and commerce officials have done about obtaining commitments from the auto industry to en- sure that Canada gets its share of investment on the Canadian side of the border This is a matter which we have under review on a contin- uing basis with the automobile companies said Mr Gillespie Mr Broadbent suggested that trade talks between Canada and the U S on the auto pact and other matters appeared to have completely broken down Is it the government's policy to allow the Americans to deal with their grievances Device may be answer to fisherman's prayer RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuter) A 15-year-old Brazilian schoolboy has invented a device that may be the answer to a fisherman's prayer It is an electronic device which causes worms to rush from their subterranean depths to the surface of the earth, where they wriggle about waiting for fishermen to pick them up and pop them on a hook The gadget, invented by Ri cardo Decio de Souza in the nty of Belo Honzonte, is a battery-operated device which transmits electric shocks into the earth The shocks do not kill the worms but for some reason, stimulate them to rush from their holes and wriggle about on the surface until the current is switched off The device has already won two state prizes and was one of the chief points of interest at Brazil's fifth national science fair recently The inventor of the worm detector says his invention is intended to boost the Brazilian worm-export industry ECOLOGISTS PROTEST "I read in the paper that many countries wanted to im- port Brazilian worms so I be- gan to experiment to discover how one could make worms come out of the Ricardo said However, the young inven- tor admitted he was surprised to find the worms wriggling on the surface once the electric shocks had flushed them from their subterranean hideouts Although the worm detector has been tested and its un- canny efficiency proved, the invention may run into trouble from environmentalists When Ricardo began his ex- periment to lure the country's reluctant worms out of the earth, irate ecologists had al- ready accused the industry of "upsetting the country's natural worm balance The outcry followed re quests by a number of countries for Brazilian worms as bait Several American sports stores sent in orders One New York store ordered several tons The ecologists, predicting the extinction of the species if the industry develops further, even coined a campaign slogan against exports The slogan said "The worm is ours As poor Brazilians with spades and buckets leaped upon the opportunity to make some extra money, the Association of Brazilian Ecologists wrote to federal authorities asking them not to permit the depletion of the worm population Amid this conflict between worm-diggers and nature lovers, Ricardo's worm detec- tor, capable of turning the worm export industry into a lucrative business overnight, can be made with very little money and might provide a new source of foreign ex- change for Brazil In Brazil's poverty-stricken northeast it seems unlikely anyone will heed the warnings of ecologists Instead, hard times seem to be ahead for the worms YOUNG MOTHER HACKED NORTH ADAMS, Mass (hP) A young mother pick- ing up her son at school was attacked by a hatchet- wielding assailant Monday as 100 schoolchildren looked on in horror The woman's former husband Leon Ciolkowski, 25, was charged with assault with attempt to murder Mrs Ciolkowski was listed in critical condition in hospital where she underwent emergency surgery for hatchet wounds in the head, back and left hand, police said by undermining the trade pact through permitting over investment in this industry on the American side of the border9 he asked Mr Gillespie denied there had been any breakdown in discussions with the U S con- cerning potential im-
